Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Drawn to authentic people, I am always there to listen, and jump on
board for epic ideas (yes, lets make up a dance and all wear
unicorn rainbow onesies as a surprise flashmob on the wedding
I want all the sushi in Vancouver in my mouth, yet I am seriously
concerned about how we are globally managing our oceans. I am
outside of the mainstream: I question consumption. C'mon, K-cups
were a really bad idea, right?
Recovering from a suburban childhood, I enjoy the texture of the
city and regularly escape to the woods. I'd love to live closer to
the land one day. I believe anything is possible, we just need to
get up and do it!
What's important to me? A healthy planet - starting with myself, I
enjoy regular exercise and eating well. For me eating well means
thinking about where my food is coming from, where it's going, what
it does in my body and growing and cooking as much of it as I can.
I like watching all sorts of stuff grow. Sure, I grow veggies,
fruit, and trees, but people are pretty neat to watch too!
My family and my goddaughter live a little ways away, but I make an
effort to visit them regularly.
I'm often one to bare my honest opinion, and I appreciate that in
return. During tough times I like to talk it through. I also have a
bit of a stubborn streak - it makes me determined to do my own
taxes, even though it takes me a while.
Work-wise I am an entrepreneur as well as an employee - a social
innovator and a business owner. I help others launch sustainability
projects and I organize others to rescue food that would otherwise
go to waste. I want to live in a world that makes more sense,
living within the lines of natural systems.

You've likely heard your friends say that they can't believe that
you're still single because you are such a great guy. Indeed, you
Comfortable in your in your own skin, you have your shit together.

Real food, real local. I like high-fiving the people resonsible for

sugar, more vinegar less salt, real butter!

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My backpack and snacks for the road.
Connection to the natural world
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The nature of our city, the nature in our city, and our darn human
nature that keeps on screwing over the rest of nature.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
TED talks and wine

Cruising on my bike to a patio, beach, arboretum, pub,

just be ready to go there with me.
